Students who choose to attend Andrews University make a commitment to be part of a gathered community and agree to be held accountable for honoring that commitment.
Absences. Absences due to occasional field trips, medical appointments, illness or family emergencies will not be excused. Students should plan to offset these conflicts with attendance at other programs. However, those who miss a Tuesday or Thursday Choice for one of these reasons may have the option to view a missed program online (if it has been recorded) and file a report. Please contact the Student Life office within one week of your absence.
Attendance Monitoring. Students are responsible for keeping track of their attendance throughout the semester. To access your attendance record, go to the Andrews Vault and click on “The Co-Curriculum.” If programs you have attended do not show up on your record, please report the program within 21 days using the “Missing Programs” link in your record.
A co-curricular fee is assessed at the end of each semester. Like tuition, proceeds cover the costs of delivering educational content. This fee accumulates based on nonattendance. There will be a fee of $25 for the first credit short of the required number and $11 for every credit short thereafter. A maximum of $344 may be charged to traditional students and $124 to non-traditional students per semester. As an incentive for participation, this fee can be minimized or completely eliminated by fulfilling the requirement.
Traditional undergraduates must complete at least 60% of the co-curricular requirement in order to pass for the semester. Students who fall short of the pass level will be placed on co-curricular probation.
|Completion Level||Co-Curricular Credits Earned|
|Fail (Co-Curricular Probation)||0-17|
Co-Curricular Probation and Registration Hold
Students placed on co-curricular probation at the end of a semester will be allowed to continue their studies the following semester. However, a hold will be placed on future registration until the pass level is achieved in the new semester. A continued pattern of failing attendance will result in the withholding of registration privileges for a period of one semester.
